5 Must-See Rogue One Filming Locations
A 20-minute drive from Vik in Southern Iceland, the black sand beach of Reynisfjarablack is the setting for planet Eadu in Rogue One.
Canary Wharf Station, London, England, UK (Death Star)
Used as a setting for an Imperial base in Rogue One, London’s Canary Wharf is quite noticeable in the film. The station was designed by the renowned architect Sir Norman Foster and is stationed on the Jubilee line, between Canada Water and North Greenwich.
The volcanic crater in Krafla as well as Lake Mývatn’s rock formations are not only featured in Rogue One to create the eerie planet of Eadu, but they’ve also appeared in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Gan, Maldives (final battle on Planet Scarif)
Gan is one of the largest islands in Maldives, and it provided the filming location for the planet Scarif. While the explosions in the final battle scene were shot in Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England, many of the battle scenes were actually shot on location in Gan.
Wadi Rum, Jordan (Planet Jedha)
Does this location look familiar? Probably because it was used as the main filming location for 2015’s The Martian starring Matt Damon. It was also used as planet Jedha in Rogue One.
